Former prosecutor general Tiberiu Nitu officially accused of complicity to abuse of office

Prosecutors of the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) have prosecuted former prosecutor general Tiberiu Nitu for complicity to abuse of office in a case on illegal use of motorcades.

Nitu, who stepped down last week, was summoned on Tuesday to the DNA headquarters, where he was notified on his position in the case and presented with the charge of complicity to abuse of office.

The case file, opened by the DNA on the name of Gabriel Oprea, a former Vice Prime Minister for National Security and Minister of Internal Affairs, mentions that Nitu had benefitted unlawfully from police motorcades.

In a statement sent to Agerpres on Tuesday, DNA states that police escorts were provided following a protocol between the Prosecutor’s Office with the High Court of Cassation and Justice and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, on grounds of legal provisions that did not actually apply to the matter.
